trouble installing playonlinux

Post by kingpeng0318 » Thu Mar 04, 2010 16:20

I entered sudo emerge -av playonlinux just like the playonlinux official site says.
But emerge: there are no ebuilds to satisfy "playonlinux". showed up every time I tried.
I cannot figure out a way to satisfy that.
Can anyone tell me how to??
Thanks very much!

Why not just using entropy our main package manager?

Code: Select all

equo install playonlinux --ask

Hi

you can use entropy
as root

Code: Select all

equo install playonlinux
or using portage :

sync portage first

as root

Code: Select all

emerge --sync && emerge plaonlinux
[Che Cos'è Il Calcolo Distribuito (BOINC)

BOINC ready ! Sabayon+BOINC = BILD ,my Sabayon spin :cyclops: - Ready to crunch for the Science everywhere :)

before anything else, update entropy:

Code: Select all

equo install entropy equo sulfur --nodeps
(usually you shouldn't use --nodeps, but entropy got updated a lot recently, so
considering the dependencies it could give some problem)

after that update gcc:

Code: Select all

equo install gcc --relaxed
(--relaxed is in order to not bring too many dependencies)

now retry with playonlinux

and please see our wiki on the package managers

your emerge probably didn't work as you didn't update the package list

emerge --sync

and also note

package managers are vital to learn
